The Course

Lincoln School of Design is an engaged community addressing applied design research problems which look to the future of the professions, society and the world we inhabit. These include design for a changing population, new forms of production and designing new cultural experiences. Research students can explore areas including history and the theory of architecture and design, urban design, environmental design, interior design and sustainable built environments.

A structured programme of research skills development is designed to enable you to develop the competencies you require for your study and future career.

An experienced supervisory team is available to offer expertise and guidance on your research and you will be supported in applying for funding, attending conferences and publishing your work. There may be opportunities to contribute to undergraduate teaching at the University, following appropriate training.

Research Areas, Projects & Topics

Research areas in the School can include history and theory of architecture and design, urban design, environmental design, interior design and sustainable built environments.

How You Study

Research students normally have two internal supervisors with specialist knowledge of their subject areas, and they have regular meetings with them for advice, monitoring and other support. Students are introduced to the relevant research methods through taught units and are encouraged to give presentations to postgraduate seminars, which are held regularly throughout the year.

Due to the nature of postgraduate research programmes, the vast majority of your time will be spent in independent study and research. You will have meetings with your academic supervisors, however the regularity of these will vary depending on your own individual requirements, subject area, staff availability and the stage of your programme.

How You Are Assessed

Assessment is via the submission of a final thesis and, in some cases, an accompanying written or oral testimony, dependent on the award.
